Definition and Impact of Self Care (or Lack Thereof)
Self care is any activity that we do in order to take care of our mind, body, and/or spirit. That’s pretty broad, but it’s also actionable. For example, self care for the mind might mean prioritizing; self care for the body might focus on exercise and nutrition; and self care for the spirit might include service to others.
Good self care is key to improving mood and reducing anxiety, building good relationships with others, living a healthy life that is balanced. Life is full of stressors, and self care can be your “secret weapon” to stop burnout before it stops you, or to reverse it if it starts to take hold.
Power of Self Care Program
Power of Self Care is a refreshing and instructive Lunch & Learn that incorporates a series of activities and practices designed to provide participants with a toolkit to take away with them and to apply in their daily lives.
The program includes: Centering activities (meditation, breath), The Case for Self Care, Your Self Care Toolkit: Self Care for the Mind, Body, and Spirit.
Power of Self-Care Lunch & Learns
From knowing or discovering what’s important to creating time and space to dream, self care – even radical self care – is at the core of our programs. Kelly’s Self Care Lunch & Learn program fosters wellness, professional development, motivation and mindfulness for groups in the workplace or other community venues. She incorporates elements of her life coaching, spiritual direction, and her own inspirational journey. Developed and delivered with the support of Nurse Practitioner and Registered Yoga Teacher Tamara White, the Power of Self Care Lunch & Learn program is CEU-eligible, and offers simple, healthy, compassionate practices for busy, burnt-out and stressed employees.
One Breath, One Stretch, One Affirmation…at a time.
Restorative workshops are customized immersive full-and half-day group sessions that incorporate various aspects of life coaching, inspirational topics, and self-care. They are perfect for those interested in enhancing work-life balance, team building, compassion, and general wellbeing of participants.
What to Expect in a Restorative Workshop
Powered by Intention, we offer compassionate, life-enhancing, fun, and fulfilling workshops that serve respite from the daily stress that life can bring. We incorporate elements of yoga, meditation, journaling and other forms of self care, but you do not need to be experienced in any of these components. We always meet you where you are.
We create the ultimate atmosphere for an introspective, empowering, refreshing experience. Tamara White (RYT 200) joins Kelly to deliver the restorative workshops, using gentle yoga practices that focus on relaxation, renewal, and effortlessness. These practices help soothe your nervous system, help quiet your mind and invite you to release deeply held tension.
